Strut top shims for 79-85
Part Number (each) 34-0130-1011
These factory shims are 5mm thick and are used to adjust the front ride height left to right. They are installed between the strut top and the strut tower to raise that corner of the car. We have found these useful after a minor fender bender. We have also found a few cars that had nothing wrong, they just didn't sit level. Maximum number per side is three.
